Brand New Book Prize Contest You Can Trust

Today is the opening day!

North Street Book Prize is Ready for YOU
It’s time! New contests are the best ones to enter (providing they are reputable) and the well respected Adam Cohen and Jendi Reiter of have a new contest for self-published books called the North Street Book Prize. I’m excited to support it because it includes all the extra benefits of contests that I like best—like critiques. Like being more frugal than many. Like offering something free just for entering—something that will help your writing career move forward.

Subscribers to this blog know that I have long recommended contests as a way to learn more and to set a book apart from the hundreds of thousands published each year. Learn more at
